Guitar Magazine UK – the world’s leading authority and resource for all things guitar, takes a spin on the CompIQ STELLA Pro Compressor in a thorough review in the September 2019 print issue. Read an extract online or the full review here.
We’ve seen rackmount studio compressors with fewer controls than this little pedal from Romanian maker Becos. Can it possibly sound as ‘pro’ as it looks? – Richar Purvis, Guitar.com
It seems that the answer is yes. Our flagship compressor pedal gets the Guitar.com Editor’s Choice badge and the reviewer scores it with a 9 out of 10 points.
This is very rewarding! Although this is a new product – launched at the beginning of 2019 -, it has risen up faster than we anticipated in user’s buying preferences, and now the mainstream media confirms that this is indeed a noticeable product.
Along with reviewing the Stella Compressor, Guitar Magazine asked me a few questions. Much to my surprise, they titled the interview with a flattering Just Becos and named me “pedal guru”, although I cannot see myself as such; this may mean a lot of responsibility from now on… Thank you, Guitar.com!
Complementing the published review, Brett Kingman from Australia also publishes his video review-demo of the CompIQ Stella about the same time. Enjoy watching it.
This little squeezer packs rack-quality features, sound and control into a pedal that will suit bass and guitar equally. In fact, you could use the Stella for pretty much any compression application including drums and voice. Nice one, Becos FX! – Brett Kingman
